The weather on May1st felt more like July 1st for this New Jersey wedding in The Historic Locktown Stone Church. It was built in 1819 by the Kingwood Baptists and was placed on the National Register of Historic Places in 1973. The church gave the village its name, after an 1839 dispute in which the congregation attempted to lock reformers out of the church. The reformers responded by installing their own lock and the town was afterwards dubbed “Locktown”.
This handsome couple met in the Dominican Republic while working together. He was a Haitian doctor who needed help with translation, and she was a multilingual Colgate graduate.
The bride’s relative is the chef and owner of the upscale Harvest Moon Inn Restaurant, nestled in one of the finest examples of Federal architecture in the state, where the reception was held.
The bride and her father did an unusual father/daughter dance to the delight of the crowd.
The Green Sergeant’s Bridge is the last public covered bridge in New Jersey.
